NPAN Condemns Proposed Nigerian Wiretap Law

NPAN Condemns Proposed Nigerian Wiretap Law

The Newspaper Proprietors’ Association of Nigeria (NPAN) has condemned the alleged move by the Federal government to empower security agents to intercept and record electronic communications between individuals and track data use from internet service providers and mobile networks.

In a communiqué issued at Abuja by the association at the end of its Executive Council meeting, the body described the move as a violation of the constitutional guarantee of free speech and an invitation to arbitrariness.

It urged the Federal Government to withdraw the bill in line with its constitutional obligation to protect the rights and liberties of the citizens.
